WDRB's Stephan Johnson reads to JCPS students

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- JCPS is trying to get students tuned on to reading -- and WDRB is helping out.

Our very own Stephan Johnson read to a group of students at Audubon Traditional Elementary School Wednesday morning.

It's part of the "Real Men Read" program. JCPS invited more than 80 volunteers into classrooms.
From TV personalities to local lawmakers, the goal is to try to reach students before they tune out of school and get turned off by reading.

Studies show some students lose interest as early as third grade.

Johnson stressed the importance of going to school each day and how it pays off in the future.
